25 random things…..

February 12, 2009

I stole this from Facebook …. mainly because I couldn’t think of a more interesting blog topic.


Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.

1. I like to think that I’m nicer today than I was yesterday.
2. I’m going bald and gray at the same time.
3. I work hard to make my wife and son smile at least several times during the day.
4. I always try to tell my wife “I love you” between 50 and 75 times a day.
5. My wife is crazy, my son is a hurricane contained within a 2-year-old’s body, and I am in desperate of strong medication.
6. I don’t consider myself to be “a good guy.”
7. I don’t care if people like me or hate me. Life is too short to worry about that nonsense.
